Nutritionist Karishma Chawla of Eat Rite 24x7 shares what to eat this season to keep your skin itch-free and hair smooth.

 

In urban jungles of India, winter is most awaited. A few degrees dip in the temperature is a huge relief from the scorching heat. However, before we can embrace the cool breeze, ​comes a weather which affects our skin and hair the most! We can already feel the shift in the atmosphere from humid to dry, making our skin, dull, itchy and flaky. Nonetheless, there's almost nothing the right diet can’t solve!

 

Opt for optimal nutrition

 

Skin requires an abundant supply of nutrients to look and feel its best. Your skin is highly responsive to optimal nutrition. The most powerful strategy you can employ to have beautiful skin is to pursue optimal nutrition. Hence go for:

 

A well-balanced diet with right proportions of carbohydrates (fibrous complex) and protein (low-fat milk & milk products and lean meats like chicken, egg whites)

 

Also add nuts, pulses and fats with right kind of fatty acids (Omega 3 & GLA) with a good hydration status and antioxidants (Vitamin A, C E, and beta-carotene) is a must :

 

Secret to moisturized skin

 

 Drink enough water, exercise well and get good sleep

 

 A well-balanced diet keeping the above in mind

 

 A good intake of omega 3 in natural form as well as supplements and GLA supplement. Good intake of antioxidants

 

Healthy hair care

 

 Hair is protein. Consuming a good protein intake is beneficial to hair health.

 

 Vitamin A is responsible for healthy hair. It helps combat hair loss and thinning of hair.

 

 Sources of the same are pumpkin, carrots, tomatoes, eggs and dairy foods.

 

 Zinc is an important mineral that promotes hair health. Try sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, poultry, beans, cashews, yogurt, almonds, peas, chickpeas, mushrooms

 

 Omega 3 foods like walnuts, flax and fish strengthens hair
